Meryl Streep Does An SNL Version Of Thatcher In THE IRON LADY Trailer

I previously confused the MOON score, used in this trailer, with THE SOCIAL NETWORK! Flog me within.

Meryl Streep is making another end run for the Oscars, this time playing the heinous Margaret Thatcher in a biopic called The Iron Lady. There’s a pitfall in playing a modern media figure: if you don’t look and sound enough like them the audience feels like you’re not doing your job, but if you put on too much of their look and sound it comes across like you’re doing a Saturday Night Live impersonation. This trailer falls right into SNL territory.
